As we get closer and closer to wrapping up 2022 (get ready with our 2023 horoscope predictions), the winds of change blow in many different directions with your weekly horoscope! The first power move of the week is performed by Jupiter, the cosmic giver of abundance and luck. Jupiter enters fire sign Aries early in the week, a move that is expected to bring us back to the past. A theme or situation from earlier in the year (March 10 to October 27), could return for manifestation or closure between now and May 15. 

Midweek, we welcome the Winter Solstice, a magical moment in time that impregnates the astrology of the next three months. This is also the official beginning of Capricorn season, the ambitious zodiac sign that is all about self-mastery. In the astrological chart of the Winter Solstice, the Sun will be activating Jupiter, which means that the Winter will bring growth for all signs. However, this growth will be intermittent, coming in waves.

Under this combination of energies, a lot of us will feel a newfound desire to succeed. However, because of the retrograde of Mars, this ambition is best channeled towards “strategizing” other than “acting”. Use the next new moon Capricorn to look back and pinpoint the insecurities or personal energetic blockages that prevented you from attaining your goals in 2022. Channel your ambitions towards putting together a plan, then see it coming to fruition by mid-January, once Mars goes direct.

Time to check your weekly horoscope for your zodiac sign—and don't forget to get ahead and check your December 2022 horoscope as well as your 2023 love horoscope and your 2023 money and career horoscope...

Let’s face it, Taurus. While your body is present, your mind is somewhere else! The Capricorn Sun has you hungry for knowledge and new adventures, and over the next four weeks, this feeling will only deepen. If you’ve been wanting to travel, you might decide to book something this week. If learning is more up your vibe now, sign up for a course or master class instead. It’s time to open your mind to newer and more interesting horizons!

This week, you are welcoming a new beginning, Sagittarius. As the moon renews itself, so do you, in the realm of finances. A total of five influences are requesting that you look at the numbers to come up with either a plan or a solution. So… it’s time to pull out the apps or spreadsheets!

Physically, you’re back in the game, Capricorn. As soon as the Sun enters your sign around mid-week, you’re feeling reinvigorated. However, you might not feel ready to set new goals for the year ahead. You can probably feel yourself on the verge of a major transformation—and you’re right! Set some time aside this week, before the Friday new moon in your sign, to record any thoughts and feelings that come to mind when you think about your future. By next week, you will be receiving powerful messages.

It’s okay to hide, Aquarius. You were already feeling the need to be alone, and as the Sun enters Capricorn, this feeling deepens. Record all the thoughts, feelings, and ideas that come to you—because with Jupiter entering Aries, your sector of communication expands in so many directions. Whether you decide to write a book or launch a podcast, this is the area of your life in which you experience more growth between now and May 15!
